Show you Care!
While national Skin Cancer Awareness month may have already passed (it is in May), rallying support for the cause is a year-round endeavor.
So, help us spread the word and save lives by showing you care. There are a variety of ways to become involved with skin cancer prevention education. You can volunteer with your local melanoma foundation (a list of them is provided for you in my book - ONLY SKIN DEEP?. You can make a charitable donation. You can also show you care by sporting your Skin Cancer Awareness pin (or hat) which features the National Skin Cancer Awareness Symbol.
When we first incorporated The Cancer Crusaders Organization in 2004, the ribbon was still relatively new and very few people knew about it. Today, we have introduced the ribbon to more than 300,000,000 across the globe. Yet, we not only want to introduce people to the ribbon; rather, rally their support and recruit their participation in skin cancer prevention education efforts.
Did you know? Every hour another person dies from melanoma--the deadliest form of skin cancer. Yet, skin cancer is 90-95% preventable. Help us raise awareness by showing you you care.
Yours in the fight,
PS: I would enjoy seeing photos of you sporting the National Skin Cancer Awareness Symbol. The top three best photos will receive a complimentary, autographed copy of my book - ONLY SKIN DEEP? Please send your photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1st.
